I loved reading "knot books" when I first started sailing. Sailing of course is no requisite for studying knots! or "bends"....
This is a lovely book written by a lovely man who cared enough about the world to share this work, which took him at least eleven years to create.
PS- this title surely IS in public domain, so- the comment from the "public domain police" is unnecessary. If in the case a copyrighted file is in the Archive by mistake, it will quickly be removed.

The copyright laws in the USA say that a work enters public domain 70 years after the death of the author. Mr. Ashley died in 1947, so it is plausible that it would enter public domain this year. But, it was posted last year. And, the copyright notice is from an edition with amended material dated 1993.
Is this truly public domain?
